Just because something is low in cost doesn’t always mean it’s lacking in value. TransNexus (News - Alert) often finds ways to route outbound communications traffic that will not hit the client in the pocketbook. Least cost routing is the focal point of the new OSPrey Call Simulator from TransNexus.
The least cost routing tool is powerful and capable of analyzing the impact of processes on the budget, whether it’s routing or evaluating rate plans from carriers, according to this Free Route Server report. Through the implementation of call detail recording, the least cost routing tool is able to simulate OSP queries. The TransNexus tool combines with NexOSS to offer analysis of the various routing methods and the costs associated with them.
Least cost routing is a process that takes place on a daily basis, using a device or software, depending upon the technology put in place by the carrier. Because telecommunications carriers access termination services with other carriers, costs will vary. Least cost routing helps carriers determine where they can get the best values to gain a competitive pricing edge in the market.
TransNexus OSPrey Call Simulator allows carriers to look at rate plans next to traffic volume and provides a deeper look into the calling patterns of customers. The OSPrey solution allows carriers to increase analysis and testing to determine how they can best attain profits.
The only real way to determine the least cost scenarios is by contrasting and comparing different options, which is not an easy process. A cost sheet from a wholesaler means very little if it isn’t put against the customer’s call volume and traffic.
The least cost routing system from TransNexus allows clients to make these comparisons that will help determine if the wholesaler’s offering is going to assist the company in achieving greater profits. But it’s not only the new wholesaler that OSPrey analyses – it also helps carriers determine the impact of losing a current provider.
Sometimes the least cost routing numbers from a wholesaler look quite good. But what is their call completion rate? Costs don’t mean much if the customer isn’t able to make the connections they need to make. The quantification abilities of the OSPrey Call Simulator can quickly determine the costs associated with those failed attempts.
Companies like Covad (News - Alert) have had excellent results in using the least cost routing solutions developed by TransNexus. Covad deployed OSPrey assist in improving its application delivery infrastructure while also increasing the company’s ability to increase profits and quality.
The least cost routing solution provided a “centralized point for optimized routing based on cost, grade of service, jurisdiction, number portability correction, times of the day and day of week,” said a Covad executive.
